It is beginning to look like Christmas...

Our tree of angels that we leave up all year round.
One of several nativity sets in my collection.

This set was done by some senior's at a retirement home.  I have had it  for years.
Some of the dolls from my collection with a beautiful poinsettia given to us by 
a dear friend.
Snowman collection
I made these snow people out of gourds we grew.  I made the Christmas tree
back in 1969.
Christmas table.  I have had this Christmas china for years and just replaced two pieces. I was amazed at the value of it now.  I found the pieces at Replacements, Unlimited in Greensboro, NC.

Two views of the small tree in the bay window in our kitchen

I hope you enjoyed some of the views from our home.  We are going to be alone this Christmas.  Our children and grandchildren live too far to come. Our son and family were just here in October for a wedding and we spent a wonderful time together.  We decided to put out the things we love and we are going to make it a wonderful for us.  We just pray for good health through this season.  I wish you and yours a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year.


  1. You have a lovely home, Marie, and the Christmas trees and decor is just beautiful! The snowmen made from gourds are so clever and I love the table setting with the pretty china. Merry Christmas to you!

  2. Your Christmas decorations are so warm and wonderful!! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas though I know your heart will long for your children and grandchildren... I've found that focusing on the little joys helps. ;) blessings ~ tanna

  4. Hi Marie! Thanks for stopping by and commenting! I was hoping that you still read my blog and would see the ornament! I love it! And I also have the snowflakes you made hanging on the tree as well!

  5. Merry Late Christmas and Happy New Year!! I hope you have been fine...we have been well and enjoying our little boy, Israel! It is quite snowy here in central Indiana right now!
